Week 18 Attention / Interest

Chapter 18 reminded me of how important attention is towards attaining our authentic self because although we might have a strong interest in developing the skills necessary to reach it, attention to the details is paramount to achievement.

I temporary lost the attention necessary which in turn impacted my interest in attaining my authentic self.  Life does have a way of grabbing the focus away from what is most important.  I think another definition of attention might be focus.  I believe that my focus needs to be laser sharp if I want to find my authentic self during this course.  I have now re-engaged and feel so much happier with my progress once again.  Expressing gratitude and kindness have strengthen my interest, which has a direct correlation to my attention to details. As Hannel says, “Begin by paying attention; before long you will have aroused interest.  This interest will attract more attention, and this attention will produce more interest, and so.”

So it is my desire at this point to cultivate attention through the practice of competing all assigned tasks and being in the moment instead of letting life sweep it aside.  I am have committed myself to the task of being my authentic self now.
